Lake Vermilion Walleye Fishing Report – Mid June 2024

Eight yellowish fish laid out in a row on a textured grey surface, possibly some type of mat or boat flooring. The fish appear fresh and are lined up neatly with their tails slightly angled, showcasing the successful catch from our guided fishing trip.

Lake Vermilion Walleye fishing report for mid June.


The dreaded mayflies are starting to hatch, but the bite is still pretty good for now. There are still walleyes biting on the 12-15’ rock piles, but the best bites have been in mid-summer locations in 15-30’ of water. Dragging a lindy rig with a leech and or a crawler has been the best presentation, followed by a slip-bobber and a leech.


Not many mayflies to report, and the bite is still very good! The best bite has been dragging a lindy rig and a leech or crawler along transition lines in 18-30 feet of water. Precisely following the transition is key, as the walleyes don’t want to move very far to get their meal.


Fishing continues to be very good along the chunk rock shorelines with access to deep water. Jerkbaits continue to be the best presentation, but you can also catch fish on swimbaits, ned rigs, and spinnerbaits.

The water is high after a record rainstorm on Tuesday, but the lake is open and the fish are biting. It’s a great time to be at Lake Vermilion!
